the president really think it will come to that? >> at this point, no. they don't. because the white house is hopeful, first of all, that the agreement that the senators are working on can actually move forward after the meeting here. there is a modest uptick in enthusiasm about that possibility. but as for the backup plan, there's no real likelihood that would ever come to a vote. because republicans would likely block it in both the senate and it would likely not come to a vote in the house. so that's really more rhetoric than it is reality and we have to hope for option "a," getting an agreement in the senate, if we're going to avoid going over the cliff. >> rhetoric versus reality, that's always a tricky place to be in washington. listen, this is serious high-stakes political poker here are what can you tell us about the meeting at the white house today? >> well, we've heard different takes, you hear everybody has a different per suspecttive of what happened depending on which party they're in. the big takeaway is everybody left agreeing on the next step which is that the senate will c
to get the dose right. you don't want to give too much, you don't want to give too little. if you give too much, the blood will be too in the. if you're not giving enough, it won't get the blood clot. you start with the medication and monitor levels of how well the blood thinner is working. literally take blood and see how it's working. usually it takes a couple days to sort that out. sometimes it can happen more quickly. sometimes it can go -- take even a few days longer. that's typically what's happening in the hospital. she also had an mri scan yesterday, on sunday, that ultimately was the test that found this clot. at some point, wolf, i'm sure that they're probably going to repeat that test. i don't know if it will be within the next few days or they'll wait longer, but that's likely something we're going to follow up on as well. >> the mri showed there was no stroke, no neurological damage. that's pretty reliable, right? >> it is reliable. and i tell you what is even more reliable is actually doing a neurological exam, having a doctor go examine in this case secretary of state cl
don't have to join a gym or buy a horse as the kay may be. you just have to get your hands on the finest piece of exercise equipment to be thrust on the fitness scene and on "the ridiculist." >> you can see number seven tomorrow night. that does it for this edition of "ac360." >>> "outfront" next, just six days until we all fall over the fiscal cliff and tonight, there's no action on capitol hill. will that change by the end of the year? tonight, two congressmen come "outfront" to talk specifics. plus, arizona's attorney general backs a plan reminiscent of the nra to arm school principles. does more guns in schools begin to add up? and the biggest political fumbles. the best of the worst from our the best of the worst from our politicians. -- captions by vitac -- >>> i'm in for erin burnett. "outfront" tonight, christmas is over. washington back to work. the countydown is on. the clock is ticking. you've got six days to prevent this country from going over the fiscal cliff and today at least, we didn't see any action. nothing. nothing, nada. now, i'm not tryin
and kept working on it. as a freshman member of the congress, i don't have the pull or the power to say when we're going to be there, when we're not but i will say this, that the u.s. house of representatives has acted. we're waiting for the senate to act and i believe that as soon as they act we'll be back in town to find some forge -- some pathway forward. >> well, a senior white house official told cnn tonight to that point, they said we believe strongly a reasonable package can get majorities in both houses. the only thing that would prevent it is if speaker mcconnell and speaker boehner don't cooperate. do you think mcconnell and boehner are in the mood to cooperate with president obama? >> i do believe they're in a mood to cooperate. they've talked -- and speaker boehner's talked for a long time about a grand bargain, about a big deal, about trying to find some major solution going forward. but the senate hasn't acted on anything, so i think we have to be careful on just placing the blame on mcconnell or boehner. without adding in to this mix, senator harry reid who is running the
really know what the process is going to be, if there is one, that they don't even see this potentially happening, if there is any kind of legislation that goes before december 1331st, until probably that day, december 31st, because the pressure will have to be on to get enough republicans in the house and the senate, to pass this. >> right up to the edge. thank you, dana. thank you, jessica. now, right now, the most likely deal on the table seems to be that scaled-down proposal president obama suggested last fright. just to recap, extend tax cuts on household income under $250,000, that's 98% of americans. extend unemployment insurance. that's important. and likely extend the alternative minimum tax fix. but is this bared down plan something house republicans can really get behind? "outfront" tonight to answer that question, republican congressman tom mcclintock of california, a member of the house budget committee. mr. congressman, good to see you. could you back that scaled back plan to avoid going over the fiscal cliff? >> as i said all along, republicans don't want taxes to go up o
